    Liverpool Street Station is to host an exhibition to remember the 669 children rescued by Sir Nicholas Winton during the war.

    It will open at the end of May and feature photographs of the 2009 train that travelled the original route from Prague to London, with descendants of the rescued children.

    It will also feature contemporary photographs and documents from Nazi concentration camps, showing the children who could not be rescued from occupied Europe.

    His grandson, Laurence Watson, 22, said: "I travelled on the Winton Train to mark the 70th anniversary of the rescue mission. This exhibition will mark my grandfather's 102nd birthday and I hope he can be there to see it."

    Sir Nicholas, known as the "British Schindler", visited refugee camps in December 1938, three months after Hitler annexed the border region of Sudetenland. He persuaded the Home Office to open the UK's doors and 669 Czech children arrived on eight Kindertransport trains.
